Pelling keen on Sheppey challenge

SUFC are pleased to announce that Josh Pelling will be joining the club.

Can you give a rundown of your playing career?

I’ve been at Horsham for the last year and a half as well as previous spells there. Also Hastings, Dorking, Rye United, Brighton.

What was the deciding factor in you joining the Ites? Talk us though how the moved happened?

Jono is a good mate of mine who I used to play with at Hastings and Rye and I liked what he had to say about the club and their ambitions to move up to the Bostik league and I was keen for a new challenge after moving on from Horsham.

What is your impression of the pitch, stadium and fans?

I played here a few years ago in pre season and remember the pitch and ground being fantastic. The amount fans the club gets is also impressive and hopefully we can keep increasing that!

You’ll obviously be hoping to make the GK gloves your own, what do you know about fellow Ites GK Aaron Lee-Wharton?

I’ve heard he’s an outstanding keeper and it will be good to have a battle for the no1 shirt!

What would you say your best GK qualities are?

Probably communication and distribution.

What are your thoughts on the forthcoming preseason games that are lined up?

I know a few of the teams quite well from the league and play offs last season so it will be a good challenge to look forward to!

Do you have a nickname that previous teammates called you?

Most people know me as Pells.

Who is your sporting icon?

It would have to be Hugo Lloris now as a Spurs fan!

Do you have a message for the SUFC supporters?

I can’t wait to get started!!

Thanks Pells!
